RALEIGH – Even though Rev. William ‘Buffet Slayer’ Barber has moved on to a more national role with the National Association for the Advancement of (Liberal) Colored People (NAACLP), he made sure to groom an Agitator-in-Chief to fill the void in the form of Rev. Dr. T. Anthony Spearman.
Spearman has wasted no time jumping on Republicans as racists at every turn, and now is taking another well-worn page from Barber’s playbook in order to draw as much attention as possible to the issue of judicial reforms.
Absent voter I.D., House Bill 2, or new tax cut bills ‘for the rich,’ Spearman wants to create a protest ruckus on opening day of the General Assembly’s 2018 legislative session to “Show Up and Tell The General Assembly Hands Off OUR Courts on January 10, 2018 11am.”
Because, you know, the courts belong to Leftists and Republican legislative super-majorities in power since 2011 have no right to reform a seriously neglected branch of state government that has increasingly become politicized in order to limit the constitutional authority of the legislature.
“Our Independent Judiciary is under attack in North Carolina – an egregious affront to Justice. This war on the judiciary is therefore a war on the people of North Carolina, and it is a war that the General Assembly has been waging for too. No longer!
Our courts have been a critical bastion of justice, and at times, one of the only places where African Americans, other people of color, LGBTQ folks, poor families, and those most disenfranchised by this General Assembly’s hateful laws have been able to find relief.”
See what I mean? They think that they own the courts. Kind of like how Roy Cooper attempted to have a former superior court judge to represent him in a senate committee hearing, the judiciary works for Democrats in their mind.
The constant use of the ‘independent judiciary’ term is laughable, because it is clear to anyone with a thinking brain that what Democrats want is a Left-leaning court system that engages in judicial activism on their behalf.
They include a video that makes the overtly Leftist agenda behind their calls for an ‘Independent Judiciary’ plain to see.
So 2018 will again be a year of Leftist protests at the General Assembly. We can only hope that Republican majorities give them some good fodder in the form of honest judicial reforms, further tax cuts, and maybe even reintroducing the common sense voter I.D. policy.
Having witnessed these astro-turf protests multiple times over the years, I can tell you that most of these people have no clue about the actual policies they are there to oppose. They know what their sign says, and that Republicans are in power so it must be evil.
And the mainstream metro media plays right along with the narrative, spreading the message across the state.
It’d be interesting to see Republican Majority Support Rallies that coincide with these asinine agitations, but then again most people have jobs they must tend to on weekdays.
Still, it would force the media to acknowledge that Republican majorities, and policies, are there for a reason – because the majority of North Carolinians from the mountains to the coast find more in common with Republican values than Progressive ones.
Finally, the call to protest asks something that one shouldn’t have to ask for in political debates: please don’t be violent.
“If you are interested in participating in Non-Violent Direct Action, please visit our website and sign up today!”
Why do they have to clarify this?!
Not being violent when voicing opposition to issues like judicial redistricting should go without saying, but, of course, the Left has a propensity for violence that has only increased since these General Assembly inundations first started five years ago.
Moreover, their whole philosophy behind Progressive Liberalism is ironically predicated on government force to control lives, and casual violence when ever they get their feelings hurt.
So if you want to see the absurdity in action for yourself, just head down to Jones Street next Wednesday and have some fun with the ‘enlightened’ crowd.
